Did you find stuff I can work from ? URLs or per mail welcome. Open
Doc Format of interest, as are other open office standards & tools.
I can web host anything approriate / permitted under copyright
My presentation is now scheduled for Fri 6 Apr 2007,
I plan to prepare in this order:
- Appeal for raw material to work from, eg here &
I've contacted http://www.allbsd.de/src/Flyer/FreeBSD/PDF/ to see
if they want to do a leaflet I could hand out at talk. (Don't
want to duplicate work
Most of this has probably been done before by Linux people but
I'm not sure whee to look, could spend longer browsing & searching
than writing my own ?
- Familiarise/acquire hardware tools
- I have a stick mouse JVC Handy Mouse HC-MM55U
- May buy a Wireless Media Presenter
(posting soon about them on usb at freebsd.org)
Determine resolution on projector supplied.
Decide font size (not too small for back of room)
Test with my X config on laptop at end of a previous session
- Dummy `slide' preparation
Probably on /usr/ports/misc/magicpoint ?
Perhaps do a framing macro.
- Try KDE system (not needed till now, I'm an old hand at Unix :-)
& confer with Ernst cc'd who knows more ports/ for users than me.
- Write presentation, including bits from above, + also from eg
- `Dress rehearsal ;-) to avoid demo effect.
- Give presentation. & publish on web after.
Anything I've missed ? Any resources (URLs) people can point me at ?
(I 'spose as we'll have 2 BSD laptops there, if we bought/borrowed
a webcam, we could record it, might interest some who can't travel
(& teach me what Not to do again ;-) )
